In software design, interface bloat (also called fat interfaces by Bjarne Stroustrup and Refused Bequests by Martin Fowler) is when a computer interface incorporates too many operations on some data into an interface, only to find that most of the objects cannot perform the given operations.
Interface bloat is an example of an anti-pattern.
